Amerimix AMX 485 High Performance Stone Veneer Mortar Wins Most Innovative Product Award

Amerimix AMX 485 Ultimate Stone Veneer Mortar from Oldcastle has won the Industry Choice Award in World of Concrete’s 2019 Most Innovative Products (MIP) in the Masonry Materials and Equipment category. The MIP award winners were selected by World of Concrete attendees and the audiences of Concrete Construction Magazine along with publisher Hanley Wood’s panel of industry experts based on the innovation they represent to the industry.

AMX 485 Ultimate Stone Veneer Mortar offers a superior formula for veneer applications, delivering outstanding sag resistance and incredible bond strength to give masons the flexibility to tackle horizontal and vertical surfaces with confidence. Amerimix’s state-of-the-art, pre-blended, highly polymer-modified mortar mix, conforms to both ANSI and MVMA installation guide specifications (ANSI 118.11 and ANSI 118.15), is suitable for use with most substrates including exterior grade plywood in addition to interior applications and doesn’t require a full system of products like other high-strength veneer mortars.

Amerimix AMX 485 Ultimate Stone Veneer Mortar’s pre-blended formula means that only water is added on the jobsite, reducing mixing time by approximately 50 percent compared to traditional mortar preparation methods and ensuring a consistent mix with every batch. AMX 485 Ultimate Stone Veneer provides exceptional compatibility with all Echelon manufactured stone products and is backed by the trusted service that makes Echelon the solutions provider that exceeds the needs of the most demanding masons and contractors.
